I Did It For You

Books on Tape. Jul. 2023. 8:46 hrs. ISBN 9780593742594. $76. SUSPENSE
Greer Dunning was overcome by grief after her older sister’s violent murder. Withdrawing from friends and family, she hoped to finally have closure after the killer was executed. However, when an apparent copycat commits an eerily similar slaying in her hometown, she must return and face her demons after a decade away. Forced to rely on the relationships she once cast aside, Greer is determined to find the truth behind the murders, both old and new, even if it means she may be the one to blame. Engel (The Familiar Dark) crafts an intricate suspense novel with slow-building intensity and a satisfying twist. Primary narrator Jennifer Pickens presents Greer’s first-person perspective in a manner that shifts from relatable to riveting, while Sean Patrick Hopkins and Amanda Stribling voice snippets from supporting characters to supply backstory and build tension. The combination yields a gripping listening experience.
VERDICT A good pick for those seeking engaging suspense about small towns, sisterhood, and unsettling secrets. Recommended for fans of Ruth Ware, Kate Robards, and Kelly J. Ford.
